Study of Numbers Chapter 2

I recently did a study of Numbers with a fellow Christian and this is what we learned about Numbers Chapter 2. I decided to make these charts in order for me to use to help explain the chapter better to others. I feel the more visual you can make something the easier it is to understand it.

You will notice that certain names of The Tribe of Israel are colored Green in the charts below; this is to bring attention to the fact that God has set them as the chief or main tribe of their particular direction or region.

From what I can see the way God had the Tribes of Israel set up camp, it makes a cross. It may look like an odd cross due to the fact that the cross beam is longer than the post but I couldn’t squeeze the names any closer than they are. The idea was to show people that it does make a cross, you just need to use your imagination in order to visualize it better.

I hope this helps to explain Numbers Chapter 2 a little better and that you are able to see what God is doing in this chapter. God Bless you and keep you safe as well as open your eyes to his truth in the Bible.
